EA Trial on MacOS / wine / Core Dump!
« on: November 09, 2017, 10:53:06 am »
Ref: https://gist.github.com/kristopherjohnson/20230ca2538ab5e7d09d

I have also sent multiple emails to Sparx Support <support@sparxsystems.com>.

What I did:
wine .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Sparx\ Systems/EA\ Trial/EA.exe
Open Ultimate version on Trial
Open EAExample Project that comes with EA
Double Click on Getting Started>Basic Modeling Package
double click on Structural Diagrams>Package Diagrams
Repeated (3-4 times) popup of createOneFont and getNewFont2 errors
accept OK for every error
And after that you get the crash dialog anytime - can't really predict.

Pretty much, one can't do anything on EA Trial version to evaluate on MacOS.

I once tried it and got it to run under MacOS (that time I was disappointed with Parallels). But - I got back to Parallels. It's simply the best mule to carry Windoze on a Mac.

I have been asked to provide EA Trial. Now if I have to buy Parallels I have to seek separate request to my boss.
He would then try to calculate combined cost into EA uses, and consider (most likely competitor) Avolution ABACUS if they have a Mac OS version. I don't have time to do too many exercise with EA evaluation.

Apologies.. but I think EA must fix this problem.

Hi sailkrish,

I'm personally far from an expert at anything MacOS related.

I'd recommend contacting our support team directly using the 'Report a Bug' link at the bottom of this page.

The link provided shows the setup steps, although I'm not sure of the variation between the brew instructions on that page and the steps on our page. I'm not sure what other information our support team would require to determine why it's failing on your system.
